If, and I repeat, IF, Zeni sent such a msg to you, why do you assume it's a city issue? Could it not just be a guild issue?
If my memory serves me correctly then the treaty stated that no baron/custodian would attack another baron/custodian. You are neither.
And Zeni is quite entitled to act in a personal capacity.
While we are on the subject of msgs, let my warn you Kes, if you EVER send me another obscene msg like the last one,I will pass it on to the Gods, and ask your writing privileges be suspended.
